Bloom like a lotus

lotus-flower-meaning-3

The lotus flower is a powerful symbol of unconditional love and enlightenment, which is why I chose it as beautiful inspiration to lead my first yoga workshop. Here is the meditation I did with students at the end of the workshop. Held in the heatwave, two days before Valentines Day, I urged my students to start with self-love and let … Read More

Yin yoga – FAQ’s

Yin-2BW

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since I taught my very first Yin yoga class, having just completed my yin training the month before – the experience took me to Cloud 10, which is floating as high as you ‘legally’ can. I’d like to say I haven’t come back down since, but hey, life! Still every time I … Read More

Drumroll…well actually it’s not that dramatic. Transitions imply slow and steady, even if it tis the season for rather dramatic metamorphosis…the whole life, death, to new life again message of Easter has got to be the ultimate reminder that change is inevitable (and even when it is quick it is seldom painless). This rather slack blogger is going to be … Read More

Give in to what is within

IMG_0059 vintage denim crop_edited-1

One of my fellow yoga teachers wisely says: “yoga is not about the shapes you make.” That’s so true, and I’d add that yoga is very much about shaping who you are, or more accurately, revealing the shape of the real you. You’ve probably read plenty of articles talking about how yoga is much more than asana practice…and it is, … Read More

It’s been a year since I started teaching yoga. A year since I discovered what it is like to teach and started learning from my students. A year of discovering how much I still have to learn. It’s been one, two, three, four, five years since we adopted our Little Yang. Five years that have flown fast. Five years worth … Read More

Angry yoga to get rid of the grumps

Kathy Krugerperspective, yoga6 Comments

HPIM0639.JPG

So you’re angry, or frustrated, or just a little snarky (hey yogis, we all get like that). But yoga is there for you, to calm you, and so you can dump that anger right down on the mat rather than unleash it on your poor friends and family, colleagues, or unsuspecting strangers. You might think that when you’re angry and … Read More

Cloud Ten

The moon looks pretty small up there in a big blue sky

It’s a real place, I swear. Sitting a bit above Cloud Nine, which is pretty darn high up, but then you’ve always sought a perfect ten and aimed for the stars. You can see them all glistening from Cloud Ten– right there in front of you. Not perfect exactly, but so close – floating up here – fluffy, light, free. … Read More

Finding-Strength-and-Power-in-the-Warrior-Poses

The Warrior (Virabhadrasana) series can say a lot about your yoga and your life. Not that yoga is a competition or life a battle that we need to fight (and win), but that real strength is found through focus and balance and standing firm for what you believe in. For women especially, the Warrior poses can be strong asanas—we women … Read More

Fast or slow?

warped clock_edited-1

This is not an erotic question! Would it drive you crazier if things went ‘too’ fast, or ‘too’ slow? Would you worry that you’d miss out on more of life if things went too slow, or if they went too fast?  Is there such a thing as a perfect speed, or is the best we can hope for some sort … Read More

We need a yin revolution

Revolution-Through-Evolution-The-Yin-Way

We need a yin revolution. Only, it’s more of a yin evolution, because that’s more the nature of Yin. We need to turn things right side up (not upside down) in a world dominated by yang and we need to do it calmly, sensitively. READ MORE at DoYouYoga

What it takes to be a great teacher

great teacher

She hugs you like a long-lost best friend. And then hugs the next long-lost best friend just as warmly. Yet you still feel special. She smiles on high-beam. Her laugh is contagious and her loud American accent isn’t even annoying – it’s joy on loudspeaker, with a twang. She strums a ukulele and serenades you in Sanskrit – you’re smiling … Read More
